This pulse sender for the aftermarket Auto Meter speedometers number and sends out 16 pulse per revolution. You would need to verify your speedometer requires 16 pulse per revolution and is electronic to confirm that it will work. This is referred to as a Hall Effect sender for match up to your speedo needs.

This sender will fit the GM transmissions that had the standard speedometer cable drive. This has 7/8 x 18 thread and the square tip drive matching up to the stock speedo cable drive and should work on your Buick 350 transmission. It will mate up to the Auto Meter gauges and other aftermarket gauges with the same PPM rating.

This sender for the electronic speedometers works on GM transmissions originally utilizing a mechanical cable drive speedometer or sender. It attaches in place of the mechanical cable to supply the pulse necessary for the electronic speedometers. If you do not have a transmission equipped with a cable drive male threaded boss and instead have wires coming out of the transmission they may be all that is necessary to supply the necessary signal. For hook up to an existing pulse sender you may want to visit the gauge manufacturers website or call direct for assistance.

This is the Auto Meter pulse sender drive for their electronic speedometers. It does have the pass through for hookup to the cruise control if so equipped. Some of the applications had the speedometer cable and the cruise cable go into a junction box before the transmission hook up and in this case the cables would both screw onto the pulse sender. Threads for the transmission hook up is 7/8 x 18. If there are other applications in question you may want to contact Auto Meter direct.

If the transmission has a spot to attach a speedometer cable (that is the same as a Chevy) this sender should work just fine.

Part number 1825291 This sender is for transmissions that have the cable drive outlet for the mechanical speedometer. If you already have an electronic sender or pulse generator in your transmission those leads should work for hook up to an Auto Meter electronic speedometer and be programmed to read correctly. If your trans does have the cable drive boss that accepts the 7/8” female portion of this sender then it should directly hook up and function properly with any electronic Auto Meter Speedo.
